Herbal Essences Throwback

Unlike many other bloggers I can't afford to use Ojon or Pureology shampoo and conditioner on a daily basis so I stick to classic drugstore brands like Aussie and Garnier Fructis. I had been using Aussie for the past couple years but my hair started looking a little dull and I needed a change.

 When I was a kid before I could pick out my own Shampoo and Conditioner, the hair wash of my parents choice the original Herbal Essences collection. They recently brought them back and I couldn't help myself, I needed it.

I remember when they replaced these with their new hip design and formula, I was really disappointed even though it was a nice formula, design, and scent. But now that I have these babies are in my life I could not go back.

I didn't expect this shampoo and conditioner to change my life, I thought it would be average but the nostalgia was well worth it. I was all wrong. The first time I used it my hair looked pretty good, but that happens randomly (even if I don't change anything) so I didn't think much of it. My hair look better and better every wash, it's a miracle worker!

The pink set it the "smooth collection" and then the green is "shine" which is the one my family used but they smell the about the same. I think the names are a little misleading though, my hair does look better, but it's not any smoother.

I'm happy using this set and maybe I'll get the shine collection next time. 


  1. Aww, childhood: tamagochi, little radios like that on the picture, and so on... It's good to have these memories :).
    I also can't afford to use the "fancy" shampoos all the time, so I'm currently sticking to L'oreal, but I'd love to try these ones out. Thanks for the review :)!


  2. I used to use these when I was younger too!

  4. Oh. My. God. I am so happy I found this post!! My parents always...and I mean always bought this shampoo and conditioner. I was sooooo sad when they discontinued it and brought in those huge colorful bottles and new lines.

    But THANK GOODNESS they brought it back!!! The smell of that shampoo and conditioner is like no other! Haha and it reminds me of when I was younger :)

  5. I have never tried this because most Herbal Essences products dry out my hair, but I have to admit the packaging is pulling me in...
